Title: Requests - Font that sounds like it is a Defective Saber
Post by: Ken at Sunrise on April 12, 2019, 05:20:53 AM
Hello everyone,

Does anyone know of a font that is more of a defective saber. Something that I could use when the blade isn't installed. Definitely nothing too fancy which would over do it.

Also, and I guess I could make a new thread, are there boot LSU files with just colors, starwars people names or numbers. I'm just learning how to play around a bit and all of my fonts boot-up with 'Obsidian'.  I've down loaded a few files from here and it is a little hit and miss. I found a lot of wave files here, but most are not compatible.

Thanks a lot everyone. I do appreciate the help,

Be more specific please! What do you want exactly? The two Jakes. China town? Dark city?
 I will try what ever you want. Just  narrow the scope please.

If it is something weird you don't want to state on the forum, so what. I'm even more interested!
 Personal message me. I'm very willing to help you out, or at least try.

No it isn't anything weird. Just two things but each are completely different which is why I thought of putting them in different threads.

1) Is there a font that I can use when the blade is not in. For example when someone says, turn it on and instead of a cool power on sound and hum, it sounds like a power on then electrical short. Then the hum would be an electric shock/short every could of seconds.  Something cool because the blade isn't it. 'Sorry kids it must not me working today', kind of fun.


2) I put different color Obsidian fonts on my saber (it has diamond sound). As I cycle through them they all begin with the same Tag Sound 'Obsidian'. Maybe if I could replace that tag sound with just 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Or something that just said 'blue', 'red', 'green'. Or even the names of people from Star Wars would be a good tag. Obi-Wan for a blue color, Luke for a green, etc...

Well I hope that isn't too weird.

At the bottom of my post, in the signature bar, is a link to a bunch of diamond saves. They include sound files mixed with color sequences. There are also a ton of sound files there, to answer question 2.
 

Question 1. I read as DETECTIVE.   Sorry. 
You wrote DEFECTIVE. A  battery or saber malfunction.  I love the saber malfunction idea, to fool the kids!!! I'm on that right away.  No blade in means no color mixing so it should go quick. What color is your regular blade choice? Ill use white if you don't specify and get started!


  Great idea! Thank you for not being shy or to proud to ask for help. I am guilt of the later myself.

I've been thinking about it. The defective detective. The movie  spiderman into the spider verse. Nickolas Cage played a noirish detective type and glitched between universes. The Defective Detective.

  I am going to make you two tiny little fonts!!!
I hate insomnia.  Thank you for giving me something to do.  I'll get it out soon. Before Monday.

Wow, that's awesome. You'd really do that.  Thanks very very much.

My normal colors are either a very Red or Consular Green. But have FOC, would that matter? If so either a very Pale Blue for the Red or a White/Silver for the Green.

So originally I was thinking a BOOT font that let you know you were on the "Malfunction" font, but not obvious.
 A power ON that sounded glitchy.
A static sounding HUM
Power OFF that sounded like that battery died half way through the audio.

 With that basic of a set up flash on clash would not be used.

I was mentioning color choice as in, you only ever use one blade color. If you want a quick font I can hook you up. If you want flash on clash colors then you need clash sounds too. You will also need swing sounds. That will take a lot longer. It also defeats the purpose of a DEFECTIVE font.

You're right, that would defeat the purpose of the Defective fount.  Better to keep it more for what it is.  Maybe down the road it might be nice to have a defective sound font for when a blade is in. But right now just something for when the blade isn't in would be awesome.

Again, I really appreciate your help,

Here you go. Sorry it  took so long.  My house lost power after I agreed to do this.  Had to wait until it came back on! Have a good weekend.

@Ken at Sunrise

 Did you get a chance to download this yet? Let me know what you think. Let me know if you wanted something different or something added. I hope it is at least close to what you were thinking.

Hey, I tried it out. It is a bit more musical that electrical isn't it? Also I was thinking of a Lockup though. If it isn't working and shaken it make more electrical sounds.  Thanks for your help. How about using parts of the Ancient Saber font. That could be fun I think?


Title: Re: Requests - Font that sounds like it is a Defective Saber
Post by: Ken at Sunrise on April 14, 2019, 11:07:20 AM
Wow, I do like the hum a lot. I think I'm going to play a bit more with what you've given me.  While I like the electrical shorts more than the musical I was to give the entire font package you've do a through go.


Title: Re: Requests - Font that sounds like it is a Defective Saber
Post by: KaiserSosay on April 14, 2019, 03:42:56 PM
I just downloaded a bunch of new sounds. I need to edit them, but I'll post them soon. I will also take another run at this font. I did get some new electrical sounds and error beeps. I thought the error beeps would be good for swings and clash. The electric sounds looped into a lock up.
 I am a little confused about what you might of heard as musical. My best guess is the on and off sounds?  I think I found  a few good alternatives for the on and offs. We will see. Give me a couple of hours and I'll post something new for you to try out!

If you follow the link to the saber malfunction sound files. You will see a new file folder titled Saber Malfunction (round 2). There are 76 sound files in there. Including 12 new hums, labeled as idle, and 11 lockups.  Have fun.

@Ken at Sunrise,

 Ignore the previous post. The link in my signature bar now has a file folder with your profile name on it.  In that file folder you will find three more file folders.  First is Ancient Saber Mod.  Second is the Electric file.  Then Saber Malfunction.  If you can't find what you need in there, let me know!  I will try to help again.  I never asked I just assumed you have a diamond saber.  If you do, you will see there are diamond saves as well.  That is why I questioned your color choices.  Have a good Monday, if that is even possible!

Thank you for always creating sound fonts, Kaiser. -5 for you


Title: Re: Requests - Font that sounds like it is a Defective Saber
Post by: KaiserSosay on April 14, 2019, 10:55:46 PM
I really appreciate the thank you infinit01.
  Truth is I remember being disappointed when I first got my diamond saber. It has all that memory but there were not a lot of sound files. There were only like three or four diamond saves. So I try to say thank you to all the people that made fonts before me, by adding to the collection.  Most of what I know I learned by dissecting other people's fonts and seeing what they did. I really like making diamond saves. I'm just running out of ideas.
  Helping other people is really just my selfish way of encouraging them to to suggest ideas!  The Electric Saber diamond save I put together is pretty cool. I need to thank Ken at Sunrise for the idea and the motivation  to make it exist.

I will absolutely get this and try them out tomorrow night. I can hardly wait. And yes many thanks for doing something like this. Being new and still a little lost on even the hilts and blades stuff like this really helps. It is good to know there is a great community out there.  So is it light or dark you'd prefer?

Thanks,

Darkside points please.  I see you have light side points. Do you want to keep following that path?
 The Darkside has cookies, just saying!

These fonts are FANTASTIC and exactly what I was hoping for. I was playing around last night, trying to mix and match. Ended up getting a little frustrated; I'm still new at getting the software to do what I want. So I just installed one of the fonts with no editing and looked at my wife and said "it's perfect", and it is.

Thank you very much for these., they are great. You do great work.

Which diamond save did you use? I'm guessing the Electric saber? The other two were bare bones.  Just an fyi, you can load say the electric font. Go into the editing program and just change a sound out for one you like better. The light sequence will stay the same pretty much. So if you like the ancient saber lock up, you can delete the one in the Electric font and just replace it with ancient saber's lock up.  Fine tuning sounds is much easier than fine tuning the lights.

 Thank you for the compliment! I'm still just learning how to do all this myself. Im sure you will catchup and then surpass me in no time! I am very happy you are enjoying the fonts.
 If you need more help or advice just ask and I will do what I can to assist.

Yes it was the electric one, very nice.  One of the wav files was really long I kept clicking save without realizing  it wasn't saving. I'm guessing there is a maximum length for some.


Title: Re: Requests - Font that sounds like it is a Defective Saber
Post by: KaiserSosay on April 16, 2019, 06:17:33 PM
Nope. No max length. I have loaded full, five minute long songs before.
 It may not load because the editing program does not like the file name. I have run in to that problem a couple times.  Try renaming the sound file and then loading it again.  If it suddenly works, the file name was the problem.
  Also,  if you have only 10 megabytes or less free space the editing program can do some odd stuff.  When I am making  a new font, I delete two or three larger fonts off the board. This gives me plenty of room and everything acts normally. Then just reload the same fonts when you are done editing.

Sometimes the font making is easy. I find that just coming up with a new idea is the hardest part of creating a font. So from my point of view,  you did the hard part!!! Thank you for sharing your idea.
  Got anything "NEW" in mind?
